OELLYQAER URBAN DISTRICT I COUNCIL. The ordinary meeting of the mem- bers of the Gelliguer District Council was held at Hengoed on Tuesday, at which there were present :—Me:ssrs Edmund Jot OP, J. P., cla;rm'in, Rev. Canon T. JcfS3 Jones, M.A., Messrs E Richards, J.P., Sydney Jones, H. Brown, Gus Jonen, J. Jones, (Birgoed), B. Hughes, J. Jones, (Fochriw), Jchn Edwards, Joseph Morgan, W. Ham- mond, W. J. Giles, Jenkin Edwards, Jonah Evans, J. H. Charles, A S. Williams, with Mr Frank T, James, clerk, Mr A. J. Samuels, deputy clerk, Mr T. R. Gabe, surveyor, and Dr. T. E. Richards, J.P., M O. On the motion of the chairman, votes of sympathy were passed with Councillors Sam Carter, (Gilfach), and D. Hopkins, (Pontlottyri), in their recent illness, and with Mr Hor- ace Green, on the death of his brother in action. Mr J. Jones, (Focbriw), drew at- tention to the need of completing the fencing on the Pentwyn allotments. This groahd, he said, had been set and the sheep were now trespassing upon the land and damaging the crop.— The surveyor said he was proceeding with the work as rapidly as possible and it wns to be hoped the work would be finished in a few diys.It, was decided that the clerk should explain the position to the secretary of the Allotment Association. Considerable discussion took place over the appoin'ment of a second female health visitor for the district. Mrs Janetta C. Lewis, New Tredegar, and Mrs L. Ruse, Bridgend, had been asked to attend before the Council, but the last named was indisposed. On a vote, Nurse Lewis was appointed by 12 votes to 5. She to take charge of the lower portion of the parish. Mr H. Brown drew attention to the allotmont ground at Brithdir. He was not complaining of the delay in the completion of the fencing as that was bfing done as early as possible, but owing to its incompleteness and the fact that much of the seed which had been planted was through the ground. A man had been appointed to safeguard the prod uce against the ravages of sheep and cattle. Ho asked the Council to confirm this and to pay the man his time.—Canon Jones moved that 92 be paid—Mr Sydney Jones in opposing said, they were opening the door to a wide movement. He knew of other plots which were open, but in these cases the farmers who owned the sheep that were tres- passing, had been called upon to pay heavy damages. The same thing should be done at Brithdir-Finally, it was decided on the casting vote of the chairman to refer the matter to the Housing Committee. I Mr Gus Jones drew attention to the delay which had arisen in taking legal ¡I proceedings in a recent case for the violation of the Shops Hours Act, and it was decided that now the office of Shops Inspector had been cancelled, to ask the permission of the chief constable that the duties should for the pericd of the war be carried out by the police throughout the p trish. The council having decided at a previous meeting to interview Mrs Lilian Ruse, Brigeud, and Mrs Janetta Lewi*, New Tredegar, for the appoint- ment of Nurse and Health Visitor, a letter was read from the former re- o gretting her inability to attend owing to llilesq. Mrs Lowis appeared before I the council, and after beirg questioned at source length she was appointed tq; tie po t The council decided t-6 allocate the Lower District as her area. It waa reported that a fmther supply of in agg e^ate nine tons of seed potatoes had been forward 'd to the council Of this parcel ont) ton was earmarked for Pout lottyn at a charge of 20s. per bag.
